YUM! Used no nuts and subbed 3 TBSP cocoa with 1 TBSP oil for each oz of bittersweet chocolate. Very fudgey and rich!
This is a full proof recipe. I didn't have enough sugar or choc chips and so instead put 1cp of white sugar and 1 cp of brown sugar and sprinkled with nuts and it came out fantastic. It can be eaten warm or cold! I brought it to a funeral wake and people were talking about the brownies more than the funeral!
Very good brownies. Not my favorite but everyone else loved them. Thanks!
